Machine cycle is an important factor and faster the machine cycle faster the program execution so processor speed is linked to machine cycle. Since machine cycle is linked to the CPU clock which is measured in Hertz which is a measure of cyclic change, hence the processor. Hope it clarifies the doubt.

Lets say I have windows 7.

This OS I can install on Core 2 duo, dual core, core i3 and so on.... even though number of cores and threads are different for different processor. Then How OS Schedules the process for it?

Even different processor have different architecture for reading and executing instruction, how OS takes care of it? I mean how OS prepares the instruction for it?
